The prestigious South Tyrolean show is now CSI2*/CSI4*

 

 

Selva di Val Gardena (May) – The Dolomites Horse Show will run between 6 and 9 July in Selva di Val Gardena. Its format passed through various iterations over the years, from a CSI3* to a CSI4*, and this year the organising committee chose to substitute CSI1* with CSI2*.

 

This change means the two-starred international Gran Prix becomes a 1.45m LG ranking. Points won during this competition will contribute to FEI overall ranking.

 

The events are as follows:

 

Thursday 6 July

CSI2* – 115cm, consecutive phases

CSI2* – 125/130cm, timed

CSI2* – 140cm, timed

 

Friday 7 July

CSI2* – 115cm, timed

CSI2* – 125/130cm, barrage

CSI4* – 145cm, consecutive phases

CSI4* – 150cm, barrage (ranking race)

THE LOCATION

Val Gardena, South Tyrol, and the Italian police force – the Carabinieri – are the sponsors of the show taking place in Vallunga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and ideal location for an event combining sport and elegance in a festive environment. Val Gardena is nestled at the heart of the north-western Dolomites, between the Sella Massif, Passo Sella, Passo Gardena, and Ponte Gardena. Its beautiful pink-hued mountains, lush green meadows, and clear blue skies and picturesque hamlets enchant tourists and mountain climbers from the world over every year.

 

HOSPITALITY

The Dolomites Horse Show features a refined VIP area with a view over the grounds and an all-inclusive service with tailored menus. These are prepared by the best Italian chefs and accompanied by a selection of wines, champagnes, and cocktails.

 

MEDIA COVERAGE

The event will be closely followed thanks to a strong presence of TV outlets and the media partnership with Rai, Eurosport, Class Horse Tv, Cavallo Magazine, and Horse & Country. This media coverage will give the event the opportunity to be seen in more than 100 million households in 20 different languages. Last year, the Dolomites Horse Show was followed closely by the whole world. During the live streaming events, more than 20,000 viewes were registered and many people followed the Gran Prix during the 4 hours of live television on Sky.
